On 29 February 2016 South China Morning Post reported:
Electronic cigarettes were found to contain one million times more cancer-causing substances than outdoor air in a study by Baptist University. Researchers also discovered a type of flame retardant that affected the reproductive system and could lead to cancer -- the first such discovery in e-cigarettes. The Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health, which commissioned the study, called for a ban on e-cigarettes as soon as possible before they become more popular. In analyzing 13 types of e-cigarettes bought on the market, researchers found that the level of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) -- a by-product of burning petroleum that is commonly detected in roadside air -- ranged from 2.9 to 504.5 nanograms per millilitre. The substance, which contains highly carcinogenic chemicals such as benzo(a)pryene, also carries various kinds of chemicals that promote growth of cancer cells.
